I had a number of things to get done last night, but I didn’t do any of them… such was my cup of triple EX-haustion. In stead, before midnight, I konked out on the bed. (I know… “konked” isn’t the most blog-worthy word, but you understand it implicitly, right? 🙂 )
That gave me fuel to face the day and experience…
- What I didn’t mention yesterday was that the kids traveled with Liz & I up to Bible School this weekend because there was a workshop for worship leaders/musicians with Rob Greene from Ontario, Canada. (The kids had their own room at the hotel, so yesterday’s room upgrade for Liz & I didn’t have anything to do with them being with us). Our kids are on their own for the most part – in terms of Christian friends – so it was special for them to be part of a workshop like that.
- When I was done teaching and after lunch, I snuck in to the workshop for a few minutes while I was waiting for Liz. There were a bit more than 100 people attending the workshop and they were all learning a choir song. I don’t know the name of the song, but when I entered the sanctuary they were repeating the chorus: “Hallelujah, I am not alone. He’s my comfort, always holds me close.” The Holy Ghost hit me square in the face with those lyrics (it’s not often that I hear a 100-voice choir) and I needed to hear them. Just a sign that the Lord knows how we feel and can speak in unsuspecting moments.
- Before hitting the highway home, we stopped at France’s first and only Costco. A bit of a “treat stop”, sometimes we pick up products from home that we can’t otherwise get here (eg. A&W Root Beer) and sometimes we pick up products that we’ve not seen anywhere else (heart-shaped, “Coeur de Bray” cheese). My thing has been their Kirkland brand dress shirts. At €19.99 they’re a good price, but not only that… they have a North American sizes (eg. 16.5, 32/33) and best of all… a North American fit (most French shirts are fitted).
